Officially 7 days make 1 week. As you can see there are only 6 days of recipes because on the 7th day it’s time to get a new box!
Ratatouille on the side
Today I’m left with little bits and pieces of vegetables. The first thing that came to my mind: ratatouille. ‘Ratatouille? What is that?’, my dearest Italian husband said. It’s French, of course I forgot 😉 It’s a typical spring vegetable dish which they like to serve in the Provence.
Pasta with String Beans & Tomatoes II
Today is a repetition of day 1, but with different tomatoes and this time I’ve added a bit of wine to the tomato sauce. I still had some cooked string beans left.
Black Cabbage & Cheesy Potatoes
My first, ignorant response to these black leafs was: ‘huh?’. So, I’ve had to check with a friend what it was ;). I’m not used to cooking cabbage a lot but traditionally cabbage goes well with potatoes.
Romanesco Fresco & Truffle Cream
In general I love to eat broccoli and cauliflower. The type of cauliflower I used this time is a little different. For one the shape and colour are great! The taste is like a much lighter and crunchier version of the traditional cauliflower.
Parmigiana di Melanzane
Another vegetarian day for us. Today I will be making a very classic dish: Parmigiana di Melanzane. It’s something I do quite frequently and it just gets better and better! The parmigiana makes a great starter or a side dish. Every family has it’s own version, this is mine.
Pasta with String Beans & Tomatoes
So here I am proud of my big box filled up with fresh veggies. Where to start?! Pasta is what we enjoy eating the most. So, it’s not a surprise that the first recipe will include a bit of wheat! This dish is easy and quick to prepare.
Why Should I Eat Locally Grown Foods? The Power of the Local Community
DHiT – The Hague in Transition facilitates the coming together of the local community to make positive changes in their way of living, housing and working. From the greening of the neighborhood and the exchange of services to the more conscious use of energy, waste and consumption.
We work with residents, neighborhood gardens, schools, small businesses, the City Council, (inter) national organizations and other interest groups to promote local resilience and to make life less oil-dependent, more sustainable and more social.
